Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan congratulated the security forces on the successful operation against terrorism in Hatay Province, in the south of the country.

This came in a tweet on Monday evening, commenting on the neutralization of two terrorists in the wake of an explosion that occurred Monday evening in the city of Iskenderun Bhattai.


“I congratulate our heroic security forces for the successful counterterrorism operation they carried out in Hatay,” Erdogan said.

He stressed that “Turkey is no longer that country that can direct and preoccupy it with such attacks.”

President Erdoan pledged to continue the fight against terrorism and its supporters within and outside Turkey’s borders.

Earlier Monday, Turkish Interior Minister Suleiman Soylu announced via Twitter that two terrorists had been neutralized in connection with the Iskenderun explosion.

For its part, Hatay state stated in a statement that “the explosion occurred during a pursuit of a terrorist.”

She added that the security forces were suspicious of two terrorists at a security checkpoint in the town of Bayas (Iskenderun), and pursued one of them and managed to neutralize him in Iskenderun.

She confirmed that an explosion occurred during the operation to chase and neutralize the terrorist, noting that there were no casualties.

She added that the security forces continue their operation in the region, without further details about the second terrorist.
